whats your budget as cubes are heavily discounted atm if you go for an 2011 model.

Be wary of buying a frame too big.. 18" may be too large
(im 5ft 5 and had a 16" cube and it felt a bit big)

my mates 5,11 and bought a 16 " on one hardtail and tbh it was a great fit for him and me at 5.8. if its a tad small you can run a slightly high seat post but if its to big youll struggle to make it feel better. smaller bikes can be thrown about to on the trails easily imo.

im 5,8 and id order a 16".

I have a ghost 7500amr and it's spot on, great build quality and attention to detail, bought the other half a ghost 7000 SE hardtail and again no issues good spec for the money and she prefers it over the wsd trek she has as well.
Spoke to a ghost dealer couple of weeks ago when buying some other bike stuff and he reckoned he just didn't get frames back for warranty issues, saying that only heard good things about cubes as well.
